Every Saturday morning from 8 till 9:30 volunteer snowbird residents of the park host a breakfast in the clubhouse. We serve up scrambled eggs, sausages, biscuits & gravy, waffles, juice and coffee. For legal reasons we don’t charge but instead ask for a “freewill” donation; most folks throw in a fiver per breakfast which covers our expenses and allows us to make a small profit which we use to finance our daily morning coffee in the clubhouse with pastries on Wednesdays. And also put on dinners at Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentines and St. Pats day. Yesterday, Dec. 20 was the second breakfast of this winter and we will continue through March.
Here are some of the kitchen staff getting ready for the morning rush.
Teddy and I both volunteer…she does pre breakfast set-up and works the dining room and I make waffles to order.
Here are some of the hungry RVers enjoying their breakfast.
(note: That's Teddy in the purple shirt walking down the aisle serving coffee.)
And, of course, there's always some washin'-up to do afterward as Gail Valentine & Teddy can attest.
I not only have a lot of fun making and hawking my wares but also get to enjoy a great breakfast at a good price.
